Stuff your Four Legged Friends Stocking with Rawhide-free SmartBones®

PetMatrix provided me with the information, product samples, and gift cards in exchange. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Our puppy was our first baby, he’s the best dog anyone could every hope for. It’s been years since we adopted him and he is getting old and I know our time is very limited with him.

He’s a handicapped 9 year old pit mix and was born missing a front leg. He’s very loved and very spoiled by us.

One of the ways we spoil him is with treats. We used to give him rawhide bone treats but often times found that it upset his stomach and after researching why and found that rawhide can upset a dogs stomach, or worse, cause stomach & intestinal blockage and the potential ingestion of toxic chemicals used to process rawhide chews.  So, no more rawhide for him. In addition to being a health risk for dogs, there are serious negative environmental issues generated by the use of chemicals in processing rawhide products.

SmartBones® are a rawhide-free, healthy alternative. They are highly digestible, and 100% delicious. We gave them a try with our dog and each of them have been a hit.


SmartBones® chews outer layer is made of wholesome, flavorful vegetables, including sweet potatoes, peas and carrots. This is then combined with an irresistible inner layer of real chicken, for a yummy taste dogs can’t resist!

Available in scrumptious recipes such as Chicken, Sweet Potato, Peanut Butter, Beef and Dental, your four legged friend will have plenty of options, including the new SmartChews® and SmartNaturals® 100% natural meat treats.

SmartBones SmartChews® come in a variety of animal shapes and use a grain-free formula for an easy to digest chew. These fun chews are vitamin and mineral enriched with no artificial coloring.

Our dog really enjoys both the SmartChews® but he goes absolutely nuts for the SmartNaturals®. SmartNaturals® are available in two delectable varieties, made with grass fed beef and sweet potatoes or grass fed lamb and rosemary.
